As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, Sylvia had been an active and well-loved member of a number of congregations in the Niagara region. As such, she faithfully held to a lifelong love of her Creator, and a deep respect for the Bible. She will be remembered for her warmth, cheerful smile and pleasant, easygoing demeanor. She was kind, patient and complimentary to family, friends and strangers alike. Sylvia was fond of simple pleasures...a big family dinner, going out for lunch, or a game of cards with good friends. She loved a trip to anywhere, grew beautiful geraniums, and baked a wonderful pie. As a gracious, generous and loving soul, Sylvia will be remembered fondly by all and will certainly be missed.
